Enjoying the coast and rivers

Hoi An city is located on the coast. So, needless to say, many hotels in Hoi An are established around the coast providing great holiday experiences to its visitors. There are many beaches for you to choose from in the city and one of the most favourite ones is Cua Dai Beach (4km ride away from the city). If peace is what you are looking for, then get a boat trip arranged to Cham Island and this will surely be a great private tropical escape for you.

Apart from the beaches, there are also amazing rivers in this town such as the Thu Bon River and hotels the likes of Anantara Hoi An Resort have gorgeous riverfront views and dining to keep you entertained and happy.


Eat, Eat and Eat

You don't travel just to explore new destinations, their cultures, or natural beauty. One of the most important aspects of your tour should definitely be exploring new food, so make sure you enjoy some authentic food when you are travelling in Hoi An. Hoi An is known as the food capital in Vietnam and once you dine at a Hoi An restaurant, you will completely understand why people say this.


Get a suite done for you

If your idea is to shop till you drop here in Hoi An, then there is a great suggestion for you. Hoi An is famous for its endless number of tailor shops and the wow fact here is that you can simply get a dress done for you by them at a very cheap rate. You just need to give your measurements to them, and they'll do their job then. Some shops also have dresses already done, so if you like one of them, and if it fits, you may also buy them at very reasonable prices.


Let the paddy fields bring you joy

Won't a series of rice paddy fields, clear blue skies, and water buffalos grazing the fields bring you a profound sense of joy in the countryside? In Hoi An, you can make all this come true. If you have already hired a bike to visit the beach, then all you've got to do is to ride towards the small villages nearby and just enjoy everything that they offer.


Take a cooking class

So, if you have fallen in love with the traditional Vietnamese cuisine, there is one interesting thing that you can try out in Hoi An. Taking a cooking class! Once you get home, you can take the recipe of these incredibly delicious dishes with you, and recreate them in your own kitchen. The experience normally starts from the point you get goods from the local markets and although you have to pay some money to sign up for a class, it's still worth it and cooking enthusiasts should definitely try it out!
